‘Apex of art and engineering’: Ontario premier, MPPs break ground on automotive innovation hub near Barrie

This is one way to get the region’s economy back on track.

Ontario Premier Doug Ford, several provincial cabinet ministers and local politicians were on hand for a groundbreaking at Oro Station, an automotive innovation park north of Barrie, Aug. 20.

The facility is adjacent to Lake Simcoe Regional Airport in Oro-Medonte and, once complete, will feature 500,000 square feet of dedicated industrial and commercial space, housing and a 16-turn, 4.1-kilometre road-racing circuit designed for modern GT and vintage-car racing.

This is set to become a hub for vehicle research, innovation, restoration and performance mechanics and the “apex of art and engineering” that will maintain Ontario’s position as a “global automotive leader,” the project’s managing partner, Geoffrey Campbell, said.

“Over the past seven years, our engineering team has been working diligently to plan and design this incredible new facility,” he said at a podium, with a backdrop of dirt piles

CAR T Cells: Engineering Immune Cells to Treat Cancer

For years, the foundations of cancer treatment were surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. Over the last two decades, targeted therapies like imatinib (Gleevec®)  and trastuzumab (Herceptin®) —drugs that target cancer cells by homing in on specific molecular changes seen primarily in those cells—have also cemented themselves as standard treatments for many cancers.

But over the past several years, immunotherapy—therapies that enlist and strengthen the power of a patient’s immune system to attack tumors—has emerged as what many in the cancer community now call the “fifth pillar” of cancer treatment.

A Tipping Point in Clinical Development

A rapidly emerging immunotherapy approach is called adoptive cell transfer (ACT): collecting and using patients’ own immune cells to treat their cancer. There are several types of ACT (see the box below, titled “ACT: TILs, TCRs, and CARs”), but, thus far, the one that has advanced the furthest in clinical development is called CAR T-cell
